    TRU Rochester seems to have had a huge TF delivery. TLK wave 2 deluxes, legions and 1 Steps. No new voyagers though, just tonnes of optimus and Grimlock (exactly what happened with AOE, wave 2 showed up well after it finished showing at cinemas, but we got no voyagers past wave 1). Loads of Combiner Force stuff, but not much in the way of Generations, apart from loads of legends, but nothing new from what I remember.

    Also, they’ve updated the main TF section (which currently has Star Wars stuff in it) with the new ‘evergreen’ branding:

    It'll be Topspin, he's in wave 4 with the other two deluxe you saw.

    Twin Twist is Wave 5, with Misfire, Windblade and repacked Wolfwire. Hasn't been seen yet but Wave 5 Legends have been seen so keep your eyes open!
    Gnaw (and Kickback) are Wave 3, should be all but gone from retail now.
    Brawn is Wave 4, pretty much everywhere at the moment.
    Seaspray is Wave 5, only found at TRU this week.

    TRU Tunbridge Wells has the first wave of Allspark Tech figures, though I didn’t see them in the Rochester branch yesterday. Have these been seen in the UK already?(messed up the pic of Optimus and didn’t notice, duh)

    Not a transformer sighting, but Asda are having a "big toy rollback", including a large Playmobli hospital for £30 instead of £65. Might be worth checking for kids Christmas presents :)

    I think this might be the toy sale that started a couple of weeks ago. Definitely worth keeping an eye on as the stock keeps changing. There was TLK Flip and Change Bumblebee and Hotrod for £19 each down from £25. I picked up a couple of Lego 10704 sets since they'd gone from £30 to £18. There was also a Lego box with three sets in it for £30 which would've been a bargain if I didn't already own them separately.

    I also spotted the First Wave of the All Spark Figures in store in Smyths in Beckton.
    The Optimus Prime figure had been spotted by me in Tesco about 3 weeks ago as well. Maybe first spot in Toys R us.

    Came across TR SixShot in Kerrison Toys in Great Yarmouth a couple of weeks ago. Left it there because of the £59.99 price tag, but it was still there yesterday morning so my friend bought it and then traded it with me for some of my loose Lego stash.

    I'm so totally her loose Lego dealer. :p

    Robotkingdom have prorders tmw. If RK have them then Kapow & IDToys usually do and, iirc, Kapow said they'd have them.

    BTW the Amazon link above is for a seller, not Amazon themselves, and a seller with the name Importer in the title so isn't likely to be a UK release. A look at the bck of the card if anyone takes them up on the offer please!

    Same Seller has Windblade at the same price but his Twin Twist is £10 dearer!

    And amazon links: find the /dp/ in the link. There's a number/product code to the right of that. Everything to the right of that is junk and can be got rid of!

    Like Phil sez but I'd add that Kapow announced directly that they would be offering Arcee in October but with no pre-orders available, so if RK are putting Pre-orders up Sunday Kapow may not be (do check, I still will be doing).
    I have a theory due to the TRU US listing for her apparently due to go live on October 5th that that could be a 'May Mayhem' style release date for her and Kapow could be tied to that where RK being East Asia based can kinda get away with flouting it. Deffo keep your eyes on Kapow from the 1st if you're after her though.

    I didn't get the memo from Kapow about it, so thanks for the heads up! Hopefully I can get one

    S'what community is for, innit? Also, I'm thinking Phil may be right about tomorrow now as looking back at the post it actually says...
